Something Different for you. 

[I was going to post a tune by me, but did not want to upset my followers.  hehee!]

Today I found these in my drafts, and have been there for a long while and here is something very different from the normal run of the mill music. I know we all have little time to spare on blogs but these video’s are well worth the time.

I am sure if you listen to the music here and judge them for what they are you will be knocked off your feet. Whats more there are many more to listen to with their links at the end of each video. So please enjoy, I am sure you will.

This second one is pretty special, the video is brilliant.

Slightly longer video below but well worth the time to listen.

This band has been one of my favourites from the start. I became aware of them because of the music but being a guitar player the lead guitar player in this band was and is one of my top ten list of guitar players. Albert Lee.

One day in 1976 I was walking through the streets of Twickenham in Middlesex England. I was looking for a particular music shop, one that sells vinyls and cassette tapes. I was looking for Old Soldiers Never Die cassette by Heads Hands and Feet. Not only did I find the shop, I found the album, [vinyl] i also found another cassette of a band that I loved,, Elastique by Stretch. Maybe a post for the future. You all will love them also.

The above is from the Album ‘Tracks’ Hope you like them enough to check out for more, they have done some really great stuff. Enjoy my friends and Thank you.
